70 House Republicans voted in favor of funding $300 million for a new FBI headquarters in the heart of liberal fed-funded Greenbelt, Maryland. It will be even larger than the Pentagon, a famously huge office building. The money is being spent at a time when we have an insecure southern border and an under-funded military. Is it any wonder they keep losing when they vote to grow and weaponize government at every turn.

In 1908 when the FBI was started, it employed 40. Now it employs 37,000. Why does the FBI need a building this big?
